The Girl Who Tried Everything

and then blogged about it…

About the Girl

“If you never try you’ll never know”


I’ve never been one of those people who learn from other people’s mistakes.  I run, jump, dive, and fight through everything in my life.  I was alway the kid who touched the hot pot, even after my mom said “it’s hot don’t touch”.

I’m a 31 year California girl, who’s done everything the hard way.  I was 16 years old when I graduated high school, and instead of getting a head start on college I decided to be a free spirit.  Bouncing from place to place, and trying whatever I could get my hands on (be it good or bad).

At eighteen I started dating the man that would change my life (side note – that was the year we got pregnant with our first child a son).  Two years later we had our second son, and a year after that we got married.  Did I mention I like to do things backwards?

It goes without saying I love my family, I couldn’t imagine my life without them.  It also goes without saying kids are a lot of work.  While some women are just “cut-out” to be stay at home mothers, I wasn’t one of those women.

“Life is all about balance”

I wanted to be with my kids, but I wasn’t willing to give up my life.  The solution… college.  College is pretty amazing, in that you get to make your own schedule.  I was able to work it out so that I could do both.  Take my kids to school, pick them up, help them with their homework, and still have a life outside of my family.  A place when I was free to try new things and have adult conversations.
I graduated with a BA in photography with a minor in business.  Right out of college I opened a photography studio and worked as a freelance photographer for a number of companies.  After a couple years I closed my studio and went to work for a company that promised to teach me everything I ever wanted to know.  I’ve spent the last couple years working as a web-designer/graphic designer/product photographer/marketing director/windows application designer.. What can I say I like to try new things and learn wherever I get the opportunity.
